Immediate Impact Alert Fund

Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton, Stark Community Foundation and other local funders have joined forces to collectively and quickly respond to the needs of area organizations affected by the rapidly-evolving spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Stark County. A grant application has been created and Stark Community Foundation’s Immediate Impact Alert Fund has been activated to mobilize much-needed resources to organizations experiencing unexpected financial challenges.

How to Apply for Funding

To help local funders stay informed of the growing need and to streamline the requests for financial support, a mini-grant application has been created to capture how organizations have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis and grants will be awarded to local organizations specifically for programs that provide:

  • assistance to seniors
  • childcare for first-responders
  • emergency financial assistance (utilities, rent and mortgage assistance)
  • food
  • mental health services
  • shelter

This funding opportunity is intended to fill needs that are currently not being addressed through federal, state and local governmental resources.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Local 501(c)(3) organizations, schools, churches and government entities responding to the spread of COVID-19 in our community are eligible to apply. 


  •  While grants cannot be made directly to individuals and families, critical resources will be awarded to organizations that directly support neighbors in need.
